ADIDAS X 424
The hyped LA label launches its debut footwear collab.
From Fairfax Avenue to the adidas Originals vault, 424 has unveiled its limited-edition edit of trainers. Available now at Harvey Nichols, the adidas Originals x 424 collab imparts archive styles with the clean, contemporary edge of the West Coast brand.
Designed by 424 founder Guillermo Andrade, the adidas Originals x 424 collection sees the streetwear pioneer bring a refined sensibility to sports silhouettes. The SC Premier harks back to the golden era of tennis sneakers, stripping back the already minimalist design even further by limiting logos to a laser-engraved sole, printed heel tab and signature scarlet suede patch at the tongue. The impact is heightened by the shoes’ stark black full-grain leather.
A monochrome contrast comes in the form of the chalk-white Pro Model. A classic basketball shoe that was first released in the 1970s, the Pro Model become synonymous with the hip-hop culture Andrade grew up with. The hi-top style is detailed with the scarlet patch at the heel, a double-layer sole, the triple-stripe logo and the shell toe that’s become synonymous with adidas.
